Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Songs I would have liked Bob Weir to have covered with the Dead

Merle is covering a Jimmie Rodgers tune "Mule skinner Blues" ( one of the "Blue Yodels" , can't recall the # off the top of my head ) . Lots of great versions of that one ( Bill Monroe, The Maddox Brothers & Rose etc.).
The Dead should have did some Jmmie Rodgers, Garcia did Blue Yodel #9 with the Acoustic Band, and with Grisman on that Dylan sponsored Jimmie Rodgers tribute album ( am I right that that track was the last song her recorded , or even played ?) . Merle is a GREAT performer of JR .
Thanks for the clip .
